The ‘diamond pavilion’ is the third and last gem, attached to the MAS, that is designed by Crepain Binst Architecture.  This new diamond pavilion will be an additional asset for the Antwerp diamond sector and seamlessly connects to the pavilions of two other leading figureheads in Antwerp: the port pavilion and the silver pavilion. The exhibition concept is inspired by the characteristic shape of faceted diamonds. These facets were translated to an abstract triangular grid, called a ‘diagrid’, which forms the basis for the complete organization of the pavilion. Each visitor will have the opportunity to interactively explore the story of diamonds throughout the pavilion and meet up with 550 years of handsome craftmanship.
